The second Incredibles movie, though released more than a decade after the first film, takes up on the heels of the first film. The Incredibles are living in a motel, and they’re facing a bleak future, when super rich Winston Deaver (Bob Odenkirk) enlists Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) in a plan to make super heroism legal again. Meanwhile, Mister Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) is left minding the mischievous Jack-Jack.
The film is fun, funny, and has a good–if slightly predictable–plot. Frozone (Samuel L. Jackson), Edna Mode (Brad Bird), Violet (Sarah Vowell), and Dash (Huck Milner) return as well. The new film is very similar in tone to the first, but manages to seem fresh, possibly due to the 14 year gap since the first one. All in all, this is an excellent sequel to an excellent film.
